Another beautiful bracelet Eileen! Now i know where you get your patience from! :) How secure do you think those ring and bar closures are? I see some beautiful ones but have never used one because i'm not sure how it would stay on my wrist??

Thank you, Deb :D

Ring and bar closures are very secure as long as the bar is long enough. Unless you're making your own from scratch, you never have to worry about that. The designers took care of it.

Thank you, Kim! Yes, Mother was very talented; but most of her efforts went into raising us 6 kids ;-)

I love the story of the rings your mother use to make, in today's world it is wonderful to have these simple memories, I remember my mom knitting and making us clothing.
Making ones own jewelry, and of course making it to sell, must be fantastic I would love to be so creative that way, getting a bit of a secret thrill when you see people making something you made.
We have lots of crafters where I live who make jewelry all winter to sell at the farmers markets in the summer.
Great blog, fantastic work, enjoyed.

Thanks for taking time to leave a comment, G.B.

You're right: it is a thrill to see someone using something I've made.

I'm so glad you like my blog. Please visit again.
